The Year So Far (Part 1) – Merry Christmas Nairobi

Merry Merry Merry Christmas to you all. It is a beautiful holiday for us to be with our families and enjoy the day that Christ was born. This post will be my second last post of the year, and I would like to dedicate it to my humble city Nairobi. The year so far, more or less the past 5 months since I started blogging. Not much growth has happened to the city to make a remarkable five months later kind of thing, but during this period, I have got to learn more and more about this city that already existed before, just that I never noticed them, Sharing these findings with you is my joy as I get to showcase more than the normal Nairobi that we walk past and actually get to appreciate the little details that are there in this city.

There is so much life in and around the streets of Nairobi, as people rush to their destinations to go about their daily activities. If you decide to take a moment to just observe the life of the streets, new perspectives start to open up, This I can say boldly as it is from experience. Even with the congestion that most people complain of, life still moves swiftly. The sense of urgency that is on everyone is quite unique and very exciting thing to observe especially if you have a good imaginative mind.

Another thing that I love about this city is the way it lives up to its tag’ The City Under The Sun’. When the sun hits the sky scrapers just right giving them a beautiful blend of color is by far one of my favorite sites. Just by how sun kissed the buildings can be give a completely different perspective to a normal site that you may have been used to day by day. The best times to experience these are during the Sunset and Sunrise. You can thank me later if you get to experience it this evening.

This city has so much to offer, and what a better time to explore it, than during this festive period. The little things that most people tend to assume are the things that make the most difference when you view it in a different perspective. As you travel this festive period, keep an open mind to accept anything out of the ordinary that may easily have skipped your mind and then you will experience things that will make this holiday a memorable one.

With that, I wish you all a Merry Merry Christmas, enjoy the holidays, drive safely,make memories and if possible document them. I leave you with a small gift rapped in form of a cool guy and a violin and a Christmas spirit. I present to you Paul Macharia with this special Nairobi Through My Eyes Christmas Gift. Peace.

  1. I like the sunset observatory,its pretty cool.Could u also capture a night scenery of the city with the Xmas lights allover?Merry Christmas to you too

  2. Its amazingly beautiful, the sunset mostly!!

  3. If we all Kenyans stop complaining too much, do less politicking, love a little more, smile every so often, appreciate all that is God around us, look for the good in everyone and everything around us; then, perhaps, just maybe, we will live more fuller lives! It’s the little things that really matter! Start by appreciating how good your city and your country looks. Appreciate the now clean and lit alleys and streets! The sunsets, the nature in the city, and all the other treasure troves that reveal themselves once you look a little closer, or simply by shifting your perspective!
